Summary "Safe Counsel was originally published in the year 1893 as the first sincere attempt to explain the essential facts of sex life in their relationship to human happiness. In those days of ridiculous false modesty it was a pioneer in the true meaning of the word. Thirty-nine separate and distinct editions have now been printed. More than a million copies have been sold on a positive guarantee of satisfaction. Millions of people have found in this book the information they sought, in terms they could readily understand. In presenting this latest edition I offer an entirely new book, with new type, new illustrations, and many added features. Old fashioned theories have been replaced by modern scientific facts. An honest effort has been made to deal with the most delicate situations clearly yet cleanly, without cant or hypocrisy, yet without evasion. If, therefore, this little book serves to wipe out some medieval bigotry, to disperse some entangling misunderstandings, and to increase to some extent, at least, the happiness of the human race, its purpose shall have been splendidly fulfilled"--Preface.
